Foot is in Pain. Yuck! (Update)

27 Mar

Back in January, my left foot hurts. I have been using the P.R.I.C.E. (protection, rest, ice, compression, and elevation) recovery method. It is feeling a lot better now and I feel the strength is coming back in my foot. Not fully though, I am only referring to the strength that allow me to jump and run a little bit.

I still feel some tension and soreness in the muscles of the foot especially after an intensive work out.  So I use a tennis ball to relieve the tension in my sore foot. I push my foot into the tennis ball until I feel a light pressure. I keep rolling until I feel the muscular tightness is decreasing.  I also use sports tape to supports my sore and injured muscles on my foot during excerise.  Apparently I find KT Tape is the best sport tape comparing those compression bands or wraps.  It is not slippery and easy to apply. No more ‘mummy-like’ taping and that is awesome.

This is a long road of recovery and I do not like it at all.  This rehabilitation is a such a pain in the ass. Sign!

Foot is in Pain. Yuck!

26 Jan

I slightly sprained my left foot two times in September and November last year. It began to twinge for a day or two but the pain disappeared. I thought it wasn’t serious so I didn’t take care of it. It was a mistake by me.

The pain on my foot came back and it is tender again. I am experiencing some shooting pains when I press on the ankle area. I probably walk funny without knowing it the past months. It is now affecting my body alignment. Now my other parts of my body aches and sores. Yuck!

This isn’t new to me and I feel terrible and upset.  about it. Sigh! The recovery takes weeks. It includes P.R.I.C.E.: protection, rest, ice, compression, and elevation.  I also includes regular visit to the chiropractor, taping, exercise moderately, cutting back high impact stuff, taking rest days, and making sure the pain is really gone. I hope to speed up the recovery process by rubbing and soaking my foot with Chinese aged medicine liquor.

Wish me luck.
